    Rationale

    Revision to D613 precision statement due to recent findings at the subcommittee level that indicated the precision as listed in the current method was not as reflected in the ongoing National Exchange Group samples and to reflect the precision of the XCP Cetane Meter in the ILS. The data from numerous samples have been analyzed via D6300 compliant data and the XCP data has been analyzed as per D6708 and the findings have been incorporated into the accompanying research report and in the ballot item.
